Larson - Hull
Villisca Review, 1 March 1909
of Mr. Gilbert Larson, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. C. G.
Larson of Bethesda, and Miss Ella Hull, daughter of Mrs.
Mary Hull, took place at the home of the bride's mother
ten miles southwest of Villisca, Wednesday afternoon,
February 24th 1909, at three o'clock. The ceremony
was preformed by Rev. C. O. Lund, pastor of the Swedish
Lutheran church of Bethesda and was witnessed by almost
eighty invited guests, friends, and relatives of the
contracting parties. Miss Hilda Swanson, an aunt of the
bride, played the wedding march. Following the
ceremony dinner was served in four courses.
Mrs. Larson are at present living with Mrs. Larson's
mother but expect to make their home in the future on the
Nelson brothers farm, now occupied by Melker Peterson, 7
1/2 miles southwest of this city. Both are most estimable
young people, were born and reared in the community in
which they were married and have a wide circle of
friends who wish them well in life's journey. Mr.
Larson and Miss Hull were school mates together, grew up
as neighbors and good friends and now their wedding makes
a fitting culmination to a friendship that has been long
and sincere. The review joins in sending best
